    [Question] Getting a new computer, thoughts on this build?

    Well, my three year old rig has given up the ghost. Won't even boot up now. Fortunately, I backed up everything before it croaked, and since I've been thinking of upgrading everything so that I'd be able to play the newer games, I've decided to just abandon this system and get a new one. Like...

    [Question] Internet connection to overseas websites really slow

    Ok, so my Internet at home has been behaving rather weirdly. At night, usually after 9pm, connecting to certain overseas websites will get really slow, and frequently time out (so I only get partially loaded pages or blank pages). So, for example, connecting to Halforums or Reddit will often...

    [Bug] CivClicker and Halspace Traders under the Games tab

    I just noticed that clicking either of these games brings up a "The requested page could not be found" page. Not sure how long this has been happening. Maybe it's from the host move from a few weeks back?

    Ask me anything. I will answer every question with two answers, one true and one false

    It's up to you to decide which one's the truth.

    So... what's up with this Windows 10 thing?

    Heard today that they're giving away free upgrades for a year to owners of Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. Are you guys going to go for it immediately, or will you wait and see first? Are there any clear advantages to Windows 10 that are known for sure at this point? I use Windows 7 and I'm pretty...

    [Food] Suggestions for something to cook for my wife, or good resources to find easy recipes?

    So, my wife's been going through a lot of stress lately, so I figured I'd cook something special for her this weekend. Maybe make it a regular thing, if I don't burn the building down by accident. Problem is, I'm not a very good cook. I can follow a recipe and toss ingredients into pots and...

    The "do you need help thread" is throwing up an error from the General subforum

    I can see the stickied thread in the General subforum, but when I click it, this appears (entering the thread works fine from the Health and Advice subforum): Server Error Undefined index: isThreadBanned XenForo_Application::handlePhpError() in ThreadBan/ControllerPublic/Thread.php at line...

    [Question] Worst part of your favorite games?

    Shamelessly ripping off the movie thread! :zoid: I'll start. The Mass Effect games are awesome, but I disliked the elevators and tedious walking in the first game, and I disliked the deviations from established lore in the second game. I haven't played the third, but I'm not a fan of what I...

    [PC Game] Your top 5 Steam games?

    If you were asked to list your 5 favorite games on Steam, what would you choose, and why? (I'm mainly asking for future game purchases when there's a sale) For me: 1. Football Manager 2013. This game is slightly more addictive than crack cocaine for association football fans. 2...

    [Question] Suggestions for something to read at a wedding?

    So I have a younger sister getting married in April. She's asked me, her big bro, to do a reading at her wedding ceremony. It can be a poem, a section from a book, song lyrics, etc, anything, as long as it's appropriate for a fairly formal wedding. Originally she suggested I read...

    [Soccer] World Cup 2014

    So, the qualifiers are almost all in (woo hoo, England made it!) and the top seeds for the tournament have been established. And apparently Belgium and Switzerland are among the top 8 teams in the world. Also, England are ranked above Brazil, who's not even in the top 10. I think we've...

    Steam OS announced

    http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/ Steam just announced their Linux-based Steam OS. In their own words, it's "a free operating system designed for the TV and the living room." So... how is it going to work? Do I connect my computer to my TV? Or is there going to be a...

    [Question] Regarding uploaded images

    Is there a way to browse previously uploaded images, and use the previously uploaded image in a new post? It occurs to me that it would be pretty wasteful of storage space if it has eleventeen copies of all the same images, like the Grandpa Simpson gif or something else that's commonly used.

    [Question] In English, can the tilde (~) be used to denote a range?

    In Chinese and Japanese, and I think some other Asian languages too, the tilde (~) has become a way to express a range. However, as far as I can tell, the tilde isn't used this way in English. For example, "Pick a number from 1~10," or "We're open from Monday~Friday," or "We'll need 4~5 guys...

    Easy cartoon character costume?

    Pondered posting this in the Cosplay subforum, decided to post it here instead. This Saturday, the 19th, is our company banquet. The organizers have decided to make the theme "cartoon characters", in that everyone dresses up as a character from a cartoon or anime. I don't think there's any...
